After enjoying such a peaceful time at home in Barbados Rihanna and Rocky walked into a nightmare of a situation with A$AP Rocky getting arrested over an alleged connection to a November 2021 shooting.
According to reports Rihanna was initially pretty stressed, about the whole thing, and to make matters worse she was forced to cancel their baby shower, according to The Sun.
“It was meant to be Rihanna’s baby shower in LA on Wednesday night but they had to cancel,” the source said.
“Rihanna was very, very upset and stressed by Rocky’s arrest. It’s not the best time for her to be on such an emotional rollercoaster.”
Rocky, born Rakim Mayers, was arrested after he and Rihanna returned from vacationing in Barbados at LAX while exiting a private jet.
According to NBC News, the Los Angeles Police Department had been investigating his involvement in a shooting that occurred on Nov. 6, 2021.
He’s accused of approaching a man, whose name hasn’t been released, on Argyle and Selma Ave. in Los Angeles around 10:20 pm with two other men and firing three or four shots at the man.
The alleged victim claimed that one of the bullets grazed his left hand.
In a statement, the LAPD announced that the “Fashion Killa” rapper has been charged with assault with a deadly weapon.
It was also reported that police said that the 33-year-old knew the alleged victim and the alleged shooting after an argument between the two.
Rocky has since been released on $550,000 bail according to public records. His next court date is Aug. 17, 2022.
“She’s heavily pregnant and these are very serious accusations, it’s a nightmare scenario for her,” the source added.
After his arrest, the Harlem rapper’s Los Angeles home was also raided.

In a video obtained by TMZ, six officers are seen using a battering ram to enter his gated home.
There are also photos of police leaving with a box of papers from his home.
Another source spoke with US weekly sharing “she is powerful and will do what she can to help him”.
She loves A$AP and wants him to be by her side when she gives birth.
We really hope Ri gets to have her baby shower, but whats most important is remaining stress free as she awaits her little bundle of joy.
